The Tampa Bay Rays are an American professional baseball team based in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Rays compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. Since its inception, the team’s home venue has been Tropicana Field. The team began play as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 1998 Major League Baseball season. The team’s first decade of play was marked by futility; they finished in last place in the AL East in all but the 2004 season, when they finished second to last. Following the 2007 season, the team’s name was changed from “Devil Rays” to “Rays” and a manta ray logo appears on the uniform sleeves while a sunburst appears on the uniform front. The 2008 season saw the Rays post their first winning season, their first AL East championship, and their first American League pennant, though they lost in that year’s World Series. Since then, the Tampa Bay Rays have played in the postseason seven more times, winning the American League pennant again in 2020 and losing in that year’s World Series. Through 2022, the Rays’ all-time record is 1,912 – 2,034
